Bits and pieces...
Next on my list was a crocheted necklace. I have a lot of beads in my stash as well, and I thought this was a great way to use the stone chips I had left over from other projects like this dream tree.
I used metallic thread to crochet the chain that connects the stones. Simple really, thread all the stones on first then start crocheting... for this aventurine necklace I crocheted a three chain stitches, moved a stone up, crocheted three more chain stitches, on and on to the desired length. Tie a knot, add jewelry hardware, and there you go!
I also added an octopus pendant to this one because the color of the stones reminds me of beach glass.
I made a couple of them while I was at it and will definitely be making more!
I began a larger project this week as well. It's the luscious luxury yarn I splurged on during the Yarn Tour. It's soooo soft, and sparkly, and light, and amazingly wonderful. You'll just have to wait for finished photos next week!
